Finland Distinguished Professor Programme

Thought I share some good news with you.

I have been chosen as one of the reviewers for the Finland Distinguished Professor Programme (http://www.fidipro.fi/) which is sponsored by the Academy of Finland (the main funding organization on basic research for Finland; http:// www.aka.fi/eng) and Tekes (the main public funding organization for applied research and industrial R&D in Finland; http:// www.tekes.fi/eng).

The objective of the Finland Distinguished Professor Programme is to recruit foreign professor-level top researchers to Finland for a fixed period of time. The new positions will have the highest academic status in Finland. A person who has proved to be a talented researcher and who can be deemed to contribute to the progress of research within his/her own field of specialization may be appointed to a Finland Distinguished Professorship.
